    It dosn't matter too much at A level as you are getting the same qualifcations. Just have a look at the sixth form league tables and choose one with good results in London.

    As longs as you don't go to a crappy community college you will be fine.

    Sith forms tend to be in high schools where as sixth form colleges are set in a college. In general the sixth form tends to be better as the college ones can atract people not really up to the standard. I went to a 6th form college, the average UCAS point score there was 100. My sister goes to a 6th form a grammar school, her schools average score is 350.

    will it be a big problem you go into a bad ( well, a better adjustive would be "lower-ranked") and your teachers predict you to get 2A1B something in A-level.

    my Q is, will it affect the offers from U as you are from lower ranked College or it is not a important factor?

    is it necessary to go to a better reputation college? even you have started the A-Level already?

    i'd say that @ college you need to be more self-disciplined. noone will chase you up for work as there are just so many people.

    sixth forms tend to be more like school (cos they are part of a school). i left my school to go go to college (they both had very similar results and it is one of the top colleges in the country). i am so glad i left, i get more free time, it's more relaxed, but it's less disiplined than school and you have to have motivatio. one isn't better than the other. college was right for me, but my twin brother felt 6th form was right for him.

    Yeah motivation is very important, I had a lot of motivation at college but other students and failed. Teachers won't chase up work at college where as 6th form school they do.
